Talking to the dead is a dirty job, but someone’s got to do it. Read more …
Betty has been talking to dead people for thirty years and she’s weary, heart sore, and filthy rich. So, she’s packing up, taking down the website and retiring somewhere warm.
That’s a problem for Siobhan her assistant, (and the thirty other people employed in this multi million pound scam business.)
Tonight though, there’s just one final private session with yet another punter desperate for answers.
Alison Peebles is at her feline best in David Cosgrove's traditional yet rollicking play about a scamming psychic.
In truth, the quality of David Cosgrove’s writing, in Voices In Her Ear, is not really equal to the situation he conjures up; it’s crude, loud, sensational, and generally unconvincing.
There are, in fairness to Cosgrove, a few neat lines. However, his play never really gets beneath the surface of its chosen subject. Nor does it justify its less-than-surprising final twist.
It may feel a little stilted at times but Voices in her Ear makes for an ideal piece of 50 minute lunchtime drama with a nice wee gasp inducing (for some!) twist.
